Do you know an IT Superhero?

Reduxio Systems - Wednesday, July 06, 2016

If there’s anything we can learn from the steady stream of superhero movies that come our way courtesy of Marvel and DC Comics, it’s that your next door neighbor or perhaps your office colleague might just be one. Sounds too much of a tall tale to be believable?

Amazing DBAs

Eyal Traitel - Wednesday, July 06, 2016

DBAs are amazing; but is it possible to amaze DBAs? Everyone who has ever worked with one, or has tried to sell them some gear knows that their job is very difficult. Even with the challenges, they are able to keep applications and information storage services running and resolve end-user problems. But is it possible to give them something new that would ease some of their pain and amaze them?

You're (probably) wrong about being a software engineer MVP

Noam Shabat - Wednesday, June 22, 2016

How to make sure arrogance doesn’t keep you from becoming an even better software engineer. 

I am hypocritically modest. And I think you are too.

When you first meet a hypocritically modest person, you may perceive us as reserved, perhaps insecure or shy. If you are insecure yourself, you may feel that we are a little bit snobbish.

High performance? iSCSI? Yes.

Eyal Traitel - Monday, May 23, 2016

In meetings with customers, I occasionally find myself getting puzzled looks when I say that Reduxio only supports iSCSI with 10GbE SFP+ connectivity. “Hmmm, so do you plan to support FC?” is the question that comes a second later.

Storage Snapshots & Why You Should Forget About Them

Reduxio Systems - Wednesday, May 04, 2016

Data corruptions and loss of access to data are part of every storage manager’s life and will probably always be. A lot has been and is being done  to minimize the loss of use of data with millions of dollars invested in R&D to minimize these occurrences. But data corruptions due to human error, software errors, and logical errors in applications, and loss of use due to cyber attacks will always be with us.

The 4 Types of Flash Storage Arrays

Reduxio Systems - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Everyone in the storage market is excited about flash. As well they should be. Flash can deliver much better performance than spinning disks. Besides, the cost of flash media is starting to come down to a level where all enterprises should consider adding flash-based storage to their enterprise storage infrastructure.

We've created a simple flash storage array comparison to help you make an informed decision.

Reduxio! (not just a Harry Potter spell!)

Fred Nix - Wednesday, March 23, 2016

In December 2015 I received a call from Robert Terlizzi, “Hey Fred! You have to take a look at what we are doing at Reduxio and come join us!”  I was not interested in changing jobs.  But I decided to do a little research… There are over 75+ companies that will sell you enterprise level storage.  I had to ask myself, “Does the market really need YASA? (yet-another-storage-array)!?”  

My Journey Towards Joining a “Sci-Fi” Storage Company

Ken Smallwood - Thursday, March 17, 2016

To all my friends in the industry.

I’ve recently found a new home. A new and exciting storage company. But before I tell you which company I’m talking about, I’d like to share how I got to know of it and why I did everything I could to get a job there.

Out with Dewey - it's time for something entirely new in data storage

Chip Ernst - Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Round about 1956 when IBM shipped the first magnetic disc system to a paper company in San Francisco, technology for storing and finding data has been largely unchanged. Speeds, capacities, and capabilities have soared, leaving us here today mostly forgetful that we’re following a rudimentary construct for managing those bits and bytes of data that was set out in 1956.
